This report collates statistics and other information on the health of men and boys on the island of Ireland. This new report reflects issues that have emerged since 2004 due to a number of factors including: changing policy approaches; new screening programmes; the availability of different types of data; increasing concern about specific men’s health issues; and global events such as migration, economic recession, and COVID-19. The majority of statistics in this report are obtained from government data sources, which are collected by statutory agencies for their internal monitoring and evaluation purposes. This report takes a social determinants and gendered approach to collating and interpreting these statistics.
